** A fast food restaurant obviously ripping off McDonalds, barely staying out of legal trouble with the real deal? It was [=McDowells=] in this 1988 film, and [=MaDonal=] in the real world's Kurdistan in the following decade. The founder wanted to bring a real McDonalds to Kurdistan, but was refused a franchise.
*** Ripping off McDonald's to the point that the franchisee of a McDonald's a half mile down the road came with his lawyer to threaten the set crew with a lawsuit.

* RatedMForMoney: When looked at from end-to-end, the movie really only earns its "R" rating by the bath scene near the start (where the women are topless and are apparently washing the prince's genitals underwater and offscreen) and the swearing (none of which feels absolutely necessary). The rest of the movie is by-and-large a rather innocuous love story.

* MemeticMutation: The scene of Semmi opening the door to Akeem's apartment only to find the king before him, screaming, and closing the door quickly. You'll find many a modified GIF of it.
